In Crescent City, dying people can choose to become Ghosts, tethered to the living. Being a P.I. in Crescent City isn't easy or glamorous. Luckily Lola Starke has an edge: her Ghost, Aubrey. When they accept a simple missing-persons case, they're drawn into a complicated web of lies and double-crosses that involves the most powerful people in the city - including Lola's own mother. As Lola races to untangle the deceit ensnaring her, she discovers an old enemy at its center.
